The Cartoni VR Box is the interface of Cartoni Encoded Heads with all virtual production software
The VR Box converts raw angular data from the encoders into metadata formatted according to the most common protocols (FreeD A2, Mosys F4), interfacing with the PC via an RS232 serial port.
Metadata from Canon & Fujinon lenses (Focus, Zoom, and Iris) are collected and streamed along the position data to the virtual production software. The synchronization is provided by a GenLock signal (Bi-Level, Tri-Level, and Burst/Back Porch). The same incoming signal is replicated and outputted through a dedicated connector to ensure maximum versatility.
Equipped with proprietary electronics, the VR Box is powered from 12V to 30V and comes with Lemo connectors for easy interfacing with any Cartoni Encoded Fluid Head.
The outside casing features two rosettes to ensure convenient and secure mounting on Cartoni Fluid Heads during operation.
VR box has successfully obtained CE certification and passed the EMC test according to EN 55032 (2015) + A1 (2020) & EN 55035 (2010) + A11 (2020)
